Default JC tire foams

Is anyone else having problems with their tire foam splitting/degrading within a couple of weeks of racing?
.
These are mostly pre-mounts, surface cleaned-never dunked in water...

Default JConcepts 4wd front foams, trim or stuff?

I notice JConcepts packs the same foam with their 1/10 4wd front and 4wd rear tires.

Since the front tires are quite a bit narrower, I'm wondering if I should be trimming down the foam or stuffing the whole thing into the tire. What does everyone do?

I use the entire foam in mine, but I'm sure someone will tell you otherwise

It depends on how soft or firm you want the foam. More foam is more firm. Less foam is more soft.

Thanks. My first pair was trimmed down to match the tire width and it looked good at first but the foam went soft after awhile. I will try them fully-stuffed for my next pair.

When I put full foam in it makes the steering feel slower than with it cut to fit the wheel. I use the full foam tires when the track is really high bite and I am traction rolling.

We always cut the 4wd front foams down. The method that I use is to lie a tire next to the foam and rest a Sharpie on the tire, then spin the foam making a line on the foam that is just a bit wider then the tire. I hope that makes sense.

Tanner Denney takes Reedy Race of Champions by storm, Punishes with
JConcepts and wins 4wd open class.



JConcepts and Team Associated driver Tanner Denney driving his B44.1 buggy
has won the 4wd open class at the prestigious Reedy Race of Champions.
After 4 rounds of qualifying Denny sat in the 2nd position on the starting
grid but was hungry for more.



A dual 10 minute A-main format set the stage for exciting main events with
A-2 carrying more weight than A-1 putting even more pressure on the leaders.
Tanner found himself in the lead in A-main # 1 and fought a difficult race
against TQ Josh Numan but eventually finished in the 2nd position.



A-main # 2 would be different, Tanner made a small adjustment in driving
style and looked noticeably more comfortable as he took the lead from Numan
and drove comfortable and fast. With many lap-times in the low 21 second
range and dipping into the 20's on occasion, Denney had a brilliant drive
going. Finishing off the final laps in the lead, Denney felt some
pressure from Numan who was just 2 seconds behind. However, Denney would
not falter and maintained his lead all the way to the finish line capturing
the coveted open title and with it, a ticket to the Invitational class in
2012. Tanner's B44.1 was decked out with JConcepts Bar Codes in gold
compound, Punisher body and 6" HD rear wing.



Many JConcepts drivers joined Tanner in the A-main, however it was Jake
Thayer finishing in 3rd after a great finish in A-2, giving JConcepts a 1st
and 3rd finish in the 4wd Open class.



Congratulations to all the winners, West Coast R/C Raceway, Scott Ernst
productions and Brent Thielke on a successful Reedy Race of Champions.

What conditions are ideal for the new closed cell inserts? Meaning blue groove vs. a track with dusty conditions? Are they meant to replace the standard And-1 foam and to be used in all conditions?

I replaced my foams on Saturday too. The stock foams on my SC Bar Codes both split. 1 side I felt was completely split....turns out the other side was about to split in 2 spots also. Talked to a local sponsored driver and he says the tires now come with a different style foam.
